Westboro Baptist Church

On Twitter I asked if anyone would like an account analyzed. I offered to do a wordcloud of the Twitter biographies of followers of nominated accounts.

SomeGreyBloke was first off the mark. If you haven't done so already, do check out his videos. He suggested I check out the Westboro Baptist Church, famed for their "God Hates Fags" placards, their picketing of soldier's funerals,  and their poor personal hygiene.

He was likely unaware that the majority of their followers are not fans. A delightful amalgam of gay, atheist and sane Christian tweeps, the wordcloud of such diverging properties was not one likely to convey all views.

Instead I pulled all messages to @GodHatesFagsWBC and fed that into the mix.

Due to general disinterest in these irrelevant carnival sideshow attractions the collection of tweets is small enough for me to reproduce below. Hats off to the Christians; they seem to be leading the charge.

@GodHatesFagsWBC should go to hell for misquoting the bible and for disrespecting God

@GodHatesFagsWBC You don't have the slightest understanding of your own religion if you use "God" and "hates" in the same sentence/context.
